Single lane traffic in the area of the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge is expected to last in both directions through late July.
Single-lane traffic on Route 65 in the area under the Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge will begin on Monday, March 12, according to PennDOT.

The nearby Ambridge-Aliquippa Bridge closed Saturday for a $16.6 million project to repair the 10-span structure. The bridge is expected to reopen in mid-November, while the overall project will conclude in late 2013.
